There has been plenty of YouTuber-based coverage at this year’s Olympics – but it’s safe to say that none of it has been as entertaining or as baffling as Flula Borg’s. The German musician-actor-potential-character has been making some incredible videos with some of the world’s most athletic people; and his latest with swimming legend Michael Phelps tops them all.
In a bizarro “Between Two Ferns”-style interview, Flula spends an entire minute and a half in the presence of the most decorated Olympian of all time – and spends the entirety of it being delightfully weird. There’s a lot of pretending to be He-Man’s tiger, a bad wig, and “serenading” Phelps with some dodgy ukulele playing. It’s short, but it’s the most important Olympics-based content you’ll watch today; if only for the priceless reactions from Phelps.
